Moore, Dallam and Hartley counties hosting agronomics meeting Jan. 18

An area AgriLife Extension Agronomics meeting will be hosted Jan. 18 by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service offices in Moore, Dallam and Hartley counties at the Moore County Community Building, 1600 S. Maddox Ave., Dumas.

“We want to offer education and direction to crop consultants and producers to identify and use tools for more profitability during times of lower commodity prices,” said Marcel Fischbacher, AgriLife Extension agriculture and natural resources agent in Moore County. “We hope this can help them identify possible problems with the 2018 crop year and some potential solutions.”

The program will begin with registration at 8:30 a.m. and presentations at 9 a.m. The fee is $10 and lunch will be provided.

On the agenda are the following:

Crop consultants’ roundtable discussion on the 2018 outlook, potential problems and concerns.

Steve Amosson, AgriLife Extension economist in Amarillo, will discuss the economic outlook.

David Goode, The Climate Corporation climate business manager in Lubbock, will talk about putting your data together.

Katy Slough, Agrian Inc. field data technology specialist in Gruver, will help you understand what your ag data is telling you.
